Claire McKinney, is the chemistry instructor at the NYC branch. She was never a student at the Gironde Institute or an employee of Phoenix Industries; she arranged to have her baby brother (Jerry) enrolled when she realized he was a mutant and needed a more adaptive learning environment. She's trained as a helicopter pilot but never bothered to learn much about fixed-wing craft. She also has a knack for knowing the relevant weapon laws for almost any nation where a mercenary might want to chase down a minion of the Hammer Empire.
